Raleigh, North Carolina based acid-sludge quartet Doomsday Profit is gearing up to record their debut full-length album this Fall with producer Scotty Sandwich (Lydia Loveless, Mikey Erg, Wolvesx4).

The band has also announced Fall tour starting September 29 in Charlotte, NC with Cosmic Reaper, HolyRoller on the bill as well. Southeast tour dates include shows with Black Lung, Cosmic Reaper, Smoke, Thunderchief and more.

In 2021, Doomsday Profit emerged with their debut EP, »In Idle Orbit«. (Stream it here.) The dystopian fusion of sludge metal grit, stoner-doom groove, and psych-rock sizzle was hailed by genre tastemakers as “damn near perfect” (The Sleeping Shaman) and “soon to be iconic” (The Killchain), while drawing comparisons to Conan, Electric Wizard, and “Weedeater on a mean streak” (Toilet Ov Hell). The strong critical reception to »In Idle Orbit« landed the EP in the top 20 on Doom Charts’ monthly rankings for November, 2021, and at No. 94 on the same site’s year-end Top Albums list.

The release of »In Idle Orbit«, also kickstarted an active touring schedule for the Raleigh, N.C.-based band. Performing throughout the Southeast, Doomsday Profit has shared stages with the likes of Cosmic Reaper, USX, Thunderchief, REZN, Black Tusk, Restless Spirit, Snake Mountain Revival, and Thou, while building a reputation for their heavy and engaging sets.

This Fall, the quartet of singer/guitarist Bryan Reed, lead guitarist Kevin See, bassist Ryan Sweeney, and drummer Tradd Yancey, will spend August at The Sandwich Shoppe studio in Oxford, NC to begin tracking a full-length album, with producer Scotty Sandwich (Lydia Loveless, Mikey Erg, Wolvesx4) once again steering the recording process.

In September, Doomsday Profit hits the road again for a string of Southeastern shows, including six dates with Cosmic Reaper (Heavy Psych Sounds), two with Black Lung (Heavy Psych Sounds), and two with Smoke (Olde Magick Records). See below for the full dates.

With a new setlist, and a new album on the horizon, Doomsday Profit is looking forward to bringing its end-times acid-sludge to eager audiences with the slated Fall tour dates, and news to come in 2023.
